DV25 version (editable quality) of the famous film. Feel free to reedit/recombine/remix. Please consider uploading your derivative works to Internet Archive. This version was transferred from a new 35mm print made from a restored 35mm negative, which was made from our 1906-era 35mm print. The frameroll problem seen in other versions has been fixed.
